About the Project
The Oklahoma Agricultural Experiment Station, North Central Research Station, consists of 143 acres located one mile west of Lahoma, Oklahoma. The station is a major focus for Oklahoma State University’s wheat research. To support continuing the university's continuing research, Ross Group constructed a new 6,634 sq. ft. research facility, which is a pre-engineered metal building, to replace the previous facility.
The new facility includes everything a research station needs, such as equipment bays, offices, conference rooms, a welcome lobby, janitor closet, and restrooms. The new research facility provides more square footage than the previous one, providing more space for equipment and a maintenance bay to ensure farming equipment is functioning properly.
At the donors’ request, the facility was built to have a front porch to cultivate a welcoming and inviting atmosphere. The orange panels are visible from the highway so drivers can easily identify the facility as an extension of the OSU campus.
